Carving Out Artistic Moments in a Busy Day


Believe me when I say I understand that balancing work and hobbies can be quite challenging, especially when you’re as passionate about art as you are. Here are some tips to help you make time for your artwork, even on the busiest days:

Consider waking up a bit earlier to indulge in your artistic pursuits. A quiet morning can be an excellent time to sketch, jot down ideas, or take photos of potential still life subjects.

If you have a lunch break during your online work, use it to your advantage. Take a short stroll in the countryside or a nearby park. Bring your camera along to capture interesting still life compositions. Nature often provides the best subjects.

Just like you schedule work tasks, allocate specific time slots for your art. Whether it’s an hour in the evening or a dedicated weekend afternoon, make it a non-negotiable commitment.

Have your art supplies and workspace ready to go. This minimises the time it takes to get started when you have a spare moment.

When you come across a picturesque scene during your walks, snap a quick photo. These photos can serve as references for your future paintings.

Instead of mindlessly scrolling through social media during breaks, spend a few minutes sketching or planning your next artistic project. It can be a refreshing way to recharge.

Remember, your passion for art is worth making time for. These small steps can help you maintain a strong connection to your creative side, even in the midst of a busy day.

Happy creating!
